With CGI 2013 in the archives, and its participants energetically diving into new and continuing commitments, initiatives, and projects,  Hillary Clinton is not one to let the grass grow under her kitten heels.  She, too, launched headlong into another busy week today.

At her D.C. home, Hillary hosted a fundraiser for family friend and Virginia gubernatorial candidate, Terry McAuliffe.  She will host  a second McAuliffe fundraiser in New York City on October 15.  This evening she is being honored by the Children’s Defense Fund at the Kennedy Center.

Tuesday will find her back on home turf in New York to receive a National Legacy Award from Save the Children at a gala funded by Calvin Klein at Cipriani.  On Friday she will head upstate to Clinton,  New York where Hamilton College will host her as part of their Great Names Speaker Series.

Finally, she will end the week in New Haven, Connecticut where the Yale Law School  will honor her with their Award of Merit during Alumni Weekend.  Yale has a Youtube channel that will provide video of the event.

Congratulations, Madame Secretary, on the well-deserved recognition of your work, and thank you for the words of wisdom you never fail to impart.   We are always right here watching with admiration and pride!

Clinton secured as next Great Names speaker

By Bonnie Wertheim ’14

May 9, 2013

Even though it was only at the beginning of this semester that we inaugurated President Barack Obama for his second term, already the country is beginning to look ahead, toward 2016. Who will our next great leader be? Some politicians have expressed interest openly, like Vice President Joe Biden and Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, while others are merely subjects of speculation.

Of all the possible presidential candidates, the one who is probably receiving the most buzz is former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. After running in the 2008 presidential election, during which she won several primaries, Clinton went on to serve in Obama’s Administration. Now, for the first time in decades, she is enjoying life as a private citizen, and it’s hard to say whether Clinton will want to give up that freedom for a second presidential campaign. What we do know for sure, though, is that, this fall, Clinton will be coming to the Hill.

On Friday, Oct. 4, she will present a free, open-to-the-public lecture in the Margaret Bundy Scott Field House. The lecture will serve as the next installment in the ongoing Sacerdote Great Names Series, which is made possible thanks to the generosity of the family of Hamilton trustee Alex Sacerdote ’94. While the Great Names event often takes place during the spring semester, the College decided to adjust the schedule this year in order to align with Clinton’s availability.
